Perhaps you feel like the work you are doing inside your home or at an office is left unnoticed. Maybe you feel like your everyday work is less important than someone else's work. Get this: your work is ministry and God sees you. He sees it as purposeful even when the world doesn't.

In this episode, Jordan Raynor, a dear friend, comes on the podcast to talk about his new devotional The Word Before Work: A Monday-Through-Friday Devotional to Help You Find Eternal Purpose in Your Daily Work. He and Josh talk about the connection between our work and God's work on Earth, and ways that He delights in us.

Jordan and Josh talk about:

  • What work means in light of the biblical narrative 
  • God's redeeming of the work put in our hands
  • The honor it is to be chosen as the parent of your kids and the uniqueness of your role inside the home
  • The power of mourning your unhappiness in your current role, dwelling on Isaiah 65, and purposely working under the Lord with understanding there will be an eternal reward
